* MisplacedWildlife: For some reason, there's an orangutan hanging around in the heart of the African jungle, as well as a toucan, a clearly ''Indian'' elephant and, if we're going to be picky, a lion (lions live in plains and open spaces rather than jungles; so do African elephants, for that matter).

* BigDamnKiss: George and Ursula have theirs at the film's end. Doubles as George's FirstKiss (from a human, according to the narrator)
** Taken UpToEleven in the sequel, where George restores Ursula's memory with one, shifting the background to church bells, fireworks, a rocket launch and flowers blooming. Also counts as a CallBack, as earlier in the film, Ursula claims she'd hear the first two when she kisses the man she loves.

* AmusingInjuries: As the narrator explains, in this film nobody dies, but they will "get big boo-boos". George [[WatchOutForThatTree smashing into trees]] is particularly a RunningGag.
